“Dear Friends, do not be surprised at the fiery trial that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when His glory is revealed.”
1 Peter 4:12-13
Pray for each Director: August, Bob, Jay, Nathan, Phil & Rob
Continue to pray for single-minded focus on discipleship and evangelism in this changed world we are in. Pray our hearts will be filled with worship in God, which overflows in witness and love to others.
Praise God that YBL Birmingham continues to build relationships with churches, schools and businesses in this difficult time. Pray that we have wisdom to ask wise questions and identify opportunities to serve when so many are in need.
Discipleship Groups & their Leaders
Please continue to pray for groups and their leaders as they navigate the challenges of the virus and meeting together, whether virtually or face to face. Pray for a spirit of openness, that our leaders and groups will share their real struggles and apply biblical solutions to the abundance of challenges in this time.
Please pray for the upcoming YBL Ministries Birmingham joint panel event on Thursday, August 6. YBL, WBL & 2nd Half will be conducting a panel interview on the topic, “Faithful Under Fire: Standing Firm in a Secular Workplace”. This will be broadcast via YouTube and it is only the second time our men’s and women’s ministries will have partnered together on an event. Pray for many to be reached, encouraged and connected to our ministry through this time.
